Since he was a small boy, Mosab Hassan Yousef has had an inside view of the deadly terrorist group Hamas. The oldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a founding member of Hamas and its most popular leader, young Mosab assisted his father for years in his political activities while being groomed to assume his legacy, politics, status . . . and power. But everything changed when Mosab turned away from terror and violence, and embraced instead the teachings of another famous Middle East leader. In Son of Hamas, Mosab Yousef now called Joseph reveals new information about the worlds most dangerous terrorist organization and unveils the truth about his own role, his agonizing separation from family and homeland, the dangerous decision to make his newfound faith public, and his belief that the Christian mandate to love your enemies is the only way to peace in the Middle East.

I listened to this audiobook and enjoyed listening to Mr. Yossef's account of his time with Hamas. Every Christian should be required to read the book and listen to the audiobook. Most Christians are totally unaware of what is happening in the Middle East and know what is really happening in the Middle East instead of relying on both CNN and Fox News. As a Christian, it was very educational and we should keep EVERYONE- Jewish and Arabs in our prayers and for peace in the Middle East.

This was a very interesting perspective on the age old Middle East conflict. This is an insider view of the daily politics playing out in Israel/Palestine particularly within the Hamas faction and the Shin Bet - Israel’s security agency. It makes you question the coverage we get through our mainstream news reports of events in the region and what games are really being played behind the scenes by all parties involved.

I did however feel that Mosab’s review was actually too slanted in favor of Israelis over the Palestinians. He focused on the crazy and deadly extremists on the Palestinian side but we don’t hear if there is any effort by the Shin Bet to also track and reign in the equally dangerous extremists on the Israeli side.
